Famous rapper T.I. was arrested early Wednesday in Henry County, Georgia, outside Atlanta, according to authorities.
The musician, whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., was arrested outside the gated community where he resides.
He has since bonded out.
The rapper’s attorney released a statement:
“Tip was wrongfully arrested early this morning when he attempted to gain entrance into his gated community – where his wife “Tiny” and his family reside. The guard was sound asleep when Tip arrived at the guardhouse. It took Tip some time to wake up the sleeping guard. Tip clearly identified himself and sought entry. The guard refused entry. Tip was in contact with “Tiny” by phone and “Tiny” confirmed that Tip should be let in immediately. The guard continued to refuse entry without justification. Words were exchanged and apparently, the guard and/or a supervisor called the police. When the police arrived, they were not interested in hearing Tip’s side of the story and wrongfully chose to end the situation by arresting Tip.”
D’banj, in an interview with Accelerate T.V. says getting married for life was a hard choice for him.

“It was hard enough choosing to say I go marry for the rest of my life which is one thing now you want me to choose another thing. Getting married, that is the only agreement I have for the rest of my life,” he said.
